The goodwood festival takes place in the south of England on July 4-7. Volkswagen, along with its all-electric racing car ID.R, will compete in this event, challenging the 20-year race record.

The current record of 41.6 seconds was set by German driver Nick Heidfeld in the McLaren mp4/13 formula one car in 1999. Last year, the 500kw id.r, a racing pioneer in the id.family of pure electric cars under the Volkswagen brand, set a new record in the goodwood speedfest category. At the time, id.r was driven by French driver Romain Dumas, who set the third-fastest time in the race's history.

Sven Smeets, Volkswagen's motorsport director, says: "the field of mass production and motorsport is going through change. Electric cars are growing fast and have already reached the same level as diesel cars in many areas. At goodwood, we hope to show that the id.r, which USES an electric drive system, can be compared to formula one cars. However, whether Romain Dumas succeeds in breaking Nick Heidfeld's race record will depend on track conditions this weekend."

   
The changeable weather in the south of England and the road conditions at goodwood park are among the many uncertainties facing Volkswagen motorsport. Driver Romain Dumas said: "circuit conditions change throughout the weekend, so it's difficult to judge the grip properly." Bridgestone, a partner of the Volkswagen brand, offers extremely soft and gripping racing tires that allow the i.r. to sprint at full speed on the 1.86km track. Bridgestone technicians are no strangers to the challenges posed by the goodwood speedfest -- Nick Heidfeld used bridgestone tires when he set the race record in 1999.

The biggest difference in the configuration of the id.r technology from last year is the size and energy management system of the car's lithium-ion battery. Francois Xavier Demaison, technical director of motorsport at Volkswagen, said: "the ID is optimized for the characteristics of sprint RACES. At goodwood, maximising power output and minimising lightweight equipment quality are Paramount. The weight of the id.r, including the driver, is less than 1000 kg." When id.r broke the record for the cloud race in June 2018, and when it set a new electric vehicle category record at the nurburgring north circuit about four weeks ago, it covered about 20 kilometers. That's more than 10 times the length of the track at the goodwood speedfest.

 In addition to the on-track events, the Volkswagen brand is expected to surprise more than 200,000 spectators at the goodwood festival. Car fans and all interested spectators can experience the charm of electric travel at the booth of the elaborately built Volkswagen brand. ID.3 will be on hand, and viewers will also get an in-depth look at ID. CROZZ, ID. VIZZION and ID. ROOMZZ. Volkswagen plans to become the world's no. 1 electric car brand by 2025 through its electric mobility offensive. Volkswagen brand, will have more than 20 models of pure electric vehicles, with the global new energy connectors, electric vehicle charging gun, charging outlet, metal push-pull type high pressure connector, charging control box, maintenance switch manufacturers joint research and development, achieve achieve annual sales of 1 million electric cars, these models will be zero emissions and interconnection.
